FortiAP 234F access point

The exciting, brand-new FortiAP 234F access point is a ruggedized Wi-Fi 6 device with three internal antennas. It has a surprisingly friendly price for such state of the art hardware. It also has features such as OFDMA and is PSE-capable.

This 2×2:2 MU-MIMO device has three radios, a 2.4 GHz, a 5 GHz, and a separate scanning radio. It delivers 574 Mbps and 1.2 Gbps Maximum Data Rate, respectively. There is also a Bluetooth Low Energy radio. Additionally, it has dual 1 Gbps Ethernet ports for PoE+ flexibility.

What’s so great about Wi-Fi 6?

In WiFi, bandwidth is shared among endpoint devices. And, when you are in a high-traffic area with lots of access points, their coverage areas will overlap. So, as you walk through someplace like an airport, you can be moving from one access point to another.

Your endpoint (phone) is one of maybe thousands of APs and endpoints yelling and hiccupping at each other trying to be heard. Get enough devices in the same area and efficiency and performance will suffer.

What WiFi 6 does, is it opens up more lines for endpoints to talk on, so they don’t have to wait as long for their turn. It also allows more data into each packet, which can increase total throughput by nearly 40%. You end up with faster, more efficient performance, and even lower energy usage.

As mentioned, the FortiAP 234F provides three radios with internal antennas as well as OFDMA and dual 1 Gbps Ethernet ports. It can provide 24/7 scanning across both bands while still providing access on both the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. The integrated BLE radio can be used for beacons and locationing applications. It can support 512 wireless clients per Wi-Fi radio.

The FAP 234F is ideal for high-density public environments. Since it’s designed for faster browsing and downloading from mobile devices, companies with 5G deployments and offices with high-bandwidth usage would also benefit. It can be managed either by the built-in WLAN controller of your FortiGate, or the easy-to-navigate FortiAP Cloud portal.
